What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers themselves are thin, durable sheaths that are typically crafted from dental porcelain for its abilities to replicate the natural appearance of tooth enamel as well as its stain-resistance. Because each veneer is made to be placed over the visible surface of individual teeth, this treatment is able to help patients experiencing a wide range of cosmetic flaws, whether you’re looking to improve the appearance of a single tooth or your entire smile.

Some situations in which we may recommend this beautifying treatment include:

  • There are small spaces or gaps between teeth.
  • Severe tooth staining or discoloration blanket the smile.
  • Minor chips and cracks within teeth make the grin look asymmetrical or incomplete.
  • Crooked or worn-down teeth detract from the smile’s overall appearance.

The Process of Getting Veneers

The process of getting veneers typically takes place within two visits to your cosmetic dentist. During the consultation, we will discuss your smile goals with you and get a better understanding of what imperfections you’d like to see corrected. Based on the conversation, we will create a customized treatment plan, including a detailed cost estimate, so you know what to expect moving forward.

Once you decide to continue with treatment, we’ll prepare the teeth that will be receiving veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from them. This will allow the veneers to lay flush with the surrounding teeth, making for a completely natural appearance. Your cosmetic dentist will then capture impressions of your prepared teeth that will allow our dental laboratory to craft the veneers.

When we receive your restorations from our laboratory, we’ll call you back in to remove the temporary veneers and secure your permanent ones. We’ll apply an etching material and safe adhesive to the teeth that will hold the veneers in place. Once this process is complete, you’ll be able to view your newly improved smile!
